The Rome based Italian Committee of the Unicef was created in 1974 and has grown a lot since and is now very strongly represented.
The aim of this non profit organization is to help children through the world by defending their rights and raising the necessary funds to support the programmes in the developing countries.
The headquarters in Rome are located close to the Termini train station and its hotels, such as My Hotel and Hotel and Hostel des Artistes, in an ideal central area.
It is possible to volunteer or buy cards for Christmas to support the Unicef, or even make a donation or adopt a â€œPigottaâ€?.
Many a famous supporter, such as Francesco Totti, one of Italyâ€™s best soccer players : He has always shown a deep concern and love for children, and as a result was made a Goodwill Ambassador for the Italian Unicef Committee. Roger Federer theÂ top tennis player was also appointed to this mission : Celebrities are not picked out only because they are famous but because they have a real interest in the children in general and are keen to make a special effort to make improvementsÂ in children’s lives.
